West Midlands League Premier Division newcomers Hereford Phoenix started their pre-season build up programme with the defence of their Welsh Super Cup title during a week long tournament held at Aberystwyth University.
The first two days were open age and the Hereford team faced stiff opposition against Newcastle United, The New Saints and Caeridigion from North Wales. It did not start well for Phoenix who lost their first game to Newcastle United before they redeemed themselves with a 1-1 draw against the other Newcastle team. They then went on to beat Caeridigion and lost to TNS to qualify for the Challenge Cup Final where they lost out to Newcastle.
This was a very good showing for the Hereford side which only fielded five players from their senior ladies side due to unavailability and had to make up the rest of the squad with under-15 and under-16 players. The rest of the week was spent competing in the under-16 tournament, in which they managed to finish third out of six teams.
Last Sunday, Phoenix hosted a game at Bromyard Town's Delahay Meadow against a Welsh representative Under-17 side containing many Welsh internationals. Phoenix, who fielded an Under-19 team, proved to be too strong for the younger Welsh representative girls and goals from Laura Davies and Charlotte Criddle helped Phoenix to a hard fought 2-0 win against a very mobile and quick young team who were warming up for a home international tournament in Ireland.
Phoenix will continue their pre-season preparations with away friendlies against Leafield Athletic, The New Saints and Coventry Copsewood, all from the Midland Combination, before taking on West Midlands League side Leamington Lions.
